Fig & Olive on Melrose in West Hollywood, CA Linked to Salmonella

Our law firm is representing people who got Salmonella food poisoning after eating at a Fig & Olive restaurant and is preparing to file a lawsuit.

This first lawsuit will involve the Fig & Olive in Washington DC’s City Center. We have also just been contacted by people sickened after eating at the Fig & Olive on Melrose in West Hollywood, California. There is a strong likelihood that these illnesses on opposite sides of the U.S. are related.

The Fig & Olive restaurant in Washington DC’s City Center was linked to a Salmonella Enteritidis outbreak that may have sickened over 150 people from five states and the District of Columbia, according to the DC Department of Health.  Now there are 9 lab-confirmed cases of the same family of Salmonella (Enteritidis) linked to the Fig & Olive located at 8490 Melrose Pl, West Hollywood, California, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Health.

The nine people sickened at the West Hollywood Fig & Olive include 6 patrons and 3 employees. Truffle oil has been removed from the menu at both this and the DC locations. We are not sure if it has been removed from other Fig & Olive locations, but there has not been a recall because Fig & Olive makes their truffle oil, according to the California Department of Environmental Health and Acute Communicable Disease Control.  Menu items that contained truffle oil include truffle fries and mushroom croquettes.
